  • April 2009 saw the release of the last two community editions (KDE and Fluxbox) which had been released as RCs the month before and the jump made by the development team from Linux Mint 6 to Linux Mint 7.
  • Although the growth observed in April was only between 1 and 4%, last month was the best month ever for Linux Mint since the start of the project.
